Of course I know that this effect is really easy to make with Grid and cc Sphere. But this is only at first glance. If you use grid+cc sphere your globe would have backside and the meridians will become thinner to the poles.
So I show another way to create a spinning globe in After Effects. Also I need to say thanks for Ira Simpson who sent me a question about such animation.
